Project Runway, Season 8 premieres Thursday, July 29, 2010 at a new time — 9 pm ET/PT and is now 90 minutes long. The time change is to allow more footage of the workroom. What will happen to the "Models Of the Runway" is unclear. The show airs on Lifetime channel.
I lost interest when the lost season finally aired but Season 7 was back in form and the designers were on their game, this season should be even better with the expanded time. I do hope they fill the 1/2 hour left with the models because they add to the show with their insight on the designers and their work.90-Minute 'Project Runway' Premieres July 29

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A bigger ''Project Runway'' is coming to a television near you.
Host Heidi Klum says each episode will be 90 minutes when the reality show returns July 29 on the Lifetime network. That's 30 minutes more drama each week -- and that's just how Klum likes it.
''We did get always a few complaints from people that they wanted to see a little bit more, which we were obviously very excited about,'' she said in a phone interview. ''So now we have half an hour more.''
That means 30 minutes more drama each week, which this season is set to include ample tears and ambulance visits for three contestants who collapsed on the set.
''We never had that happen before,'' Klum said.
